Organized by findings to reflect how radiologists really work, this abundantly illustrated book offers more than 2,000 magnetic resonance images depicting commonly seen congenital and acquired disorders, as well as many rare and unusual cases. Along with the radiographic findings, you will enjoy brief tabular summaries of essential demographic, pathologic, and clinical features of each disease.

The book is divided into anatomical sections, including: the brain; head and neck; spine; musculoskeletal system; chest; abdomen; and pelvis. All diseases and findings are cross-referenced, providing quick access to desired information.

Special features:

  • Chapters arranged by anatomic location instead of by disease - mirroring the approach you apply in daily practice
  • Hundreds of tables listing pathological features to assist in the diagnostic process
  • Detailed descriptions allow you to differentiate between diseases and conditions that have similar appearances
  • More than 2,000 state-of-the-art images, along with detailed diagrams and charts, give helpful examples of actual findings
  • Extensive cross-referencing of information leads you to further resources

Here is the quintessential guide to magnetic resonance imaging that radiologists and other physicians need to enhance their diagnostic skills. Residents and fellows will use it as an invaluable board preparation tool. Keep this practical text close at hand.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
An encyclopedia of MR imaging of the head, body, and extremities...describes all of the abnormalities demonstratable by MR imaging...informative, well-written and organized...image quality is outstanding...highly recommended to all physicians, residents, and students... —American Journal of RoentgenologyLists various differential diagnoses according to anatomic location...easy-to-read format...chapters are well organized and illustrated...most useful for those interested in seeing the panoply of various diseases that can occur in a specific location...recommended. —AuntMinnie.comContains the essential information for a comprehensive systematic differential diagnosis of disease using MRI...more than 2,000 state-of-the-art images...helpful to radiologists involved in interpreting MRI scans...should be kept close by in the work environment. —RAD MagazineThis method of indexing encourages usage because the information needed is easily accessed. . . more importantly, all of these main sections include a rather intensive overview of the anatomical region to which they pertain. . . This type of book, particularly in this format, is an essential addition to any practice or clinical setting. . . This book provides an answer when you're not sure 'what the heck it could be' and you cannot consult with your colleagues. . . highly recommend to radiologists, fellows, medical students, and MRI technologists. —ADVANCE for Imaging and Radiation Therapy Professionals...is a useful text in approaching a different diagnosis based on imaging findings rather than one argument on disease entities...all of these are published by Thieme, which did an outstanding job in the reproduction of the images and other illustrations and tables...A major advantage of this book are the tables, which present the differential diagnosis in tabular form, also helpful in the use of other modalities. I believe that this book will be extremely useful not only to radiology residents, but also for radiologists looking for a review of the differential diagnosis of disease as they present on MRI. —Clinical Imaging
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: B. J. Manaster, MD, PhD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This book follows in the path of the successful books from the same publisher, Differential Diagnosis in Conventional Radiology and Differential Diagnosis in Computed Tomography, but with a new set of authors. It presents examples of the MR appearance of a wide variety of disease processes, organized by organ systems. For each, there is a brief introduction, followed by extensive tables which list specific diseases, MR findings, and related comments. Related images are displayed for most, but not all, of the entities listed.
Purpose: The title implies that it outlines differential diagnoses for specific MR appearances. However, the title is deceptive, because differentials are never discussed. This is simply a compilation of MR images of many diseases, grouped by organ systems.
Audience: The authors state that the book is intended for radiologists and physicians with some expertise in diagnostic imaging who wish to strengthen their diagnostic acumen in MRI. I do not see anything unique in this compilation of diseases and images.
Features: In organ systems where MR is the primary diagnostic tool, this book can be a handy reminder of the basics. However, there is no extensive discussion and generally there is a single small image for each disease process. Unlike the implication in the title, the book does not compare and contrast findings of the diseases; it simply lists them individually. A true differential diagnosis is never given, and similarities between diseases are not acknowledged and differences are not stated. The images are small, and often cluttered with distracting alphanumerics. Some topics seem to be introduced only to be complete, but fall woefully short of the complete discussions that would be necessary for the intended audience. An example would be trauma of the major joints: there is no topic-related suggested readings, and a very limitted list of references.
Assessment: It seems that this is an ill-conceived idea to present MR of some parts of the body in isolation. This might be reasonable for the brain, but much of musculoskeletal imaging as well as body imaging require correlative radiographs or other imaging. This, as well as the fact that the title misleadingly includes the term "differential diagnosis" should make potential buyers be aware that the book is more of a compilation of diseases and images.
From The Critics
Martti Kormano, who co-edited the first edition of the textbook , congratulates his successors on fitting "a significant amount of essential radiological information, hundreds of differential diagnostic tables, and approximately 2000 state-of-the-art drawings, charts, and MR images into a textbook of almost 700 pages." Six sections cover the brain, head and neck, spine, musculoskeletal system, chest, and abdomen and pelvis, with subsections covering specific regions. Each table faces corresponding MRI images and includes the name of the disease, MRI findings, and comments. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
